[emacs-w3m/emacs-w3m] New feature: support torrent/magnet links (transmission front-end) (#37)

Now, pressing RETURN on a torrent or magnet link starts downloading the torrent, just like in all other browsers! As is the case for other browsers, an external program is used for the actual work. In this case, I chose the transmission project to do the heavy-lifting because it had a convenient set of command-line utilities including a daemon, and an NCURSES-based interface that was able to be launched within an emacs ansi-term buffer (see man(1) transmission-remote-cli for all its keybinding and configuration options).
